more boxes #7: the EZ Mitre boxes continue

06-03-2012 12:44 AM by Chris Cook | 11 comments »

I’m still trying my hand at the EZ Mitre boxes. So, I took three pieces of cherry and, after joining them, I applied a thin layer of (what I think is) birch plywood to, what will be, the inside layer of the box. I know of two good reasons to put another type of wood on the inside layer of these boxes: 1) looks good2) run the wood grain alternate to the outside layer and it adds cross-grain strength Here’s two more things I NOW know 1) don’t use cheap plywood ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #689: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like . . .

05-02-2012 10:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Hey! Wait a minute! Isn’t it just starting to get warm out? It is here in Nova Scotia anyway! While most of you are starting to get the garden ready and dreaming of days at the camp or the pool or the beach, I have been sitting here humming Christmas tunes to myself and getting my projects ready for the holiday issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. I was really happy about the responses I received on the bells yesterday. It seems like many of you are intrigued about...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #663: And Yet Another Idea . .

04-06-2012 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

After a full day of working yesterday, I am still finishing up the site update. Sometimes I think that my own ideas are the things that slow me down the most. Just when I think I am getting caught up, it seems that I have another idea and then I try to get it finished and include it in the current deadline. If I don’t, I start to feel that I am not trying my hardest and I get disappointed with myself. So I push. I used to do the same thing when I participated in neighborhood craft sales...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #662: A Nice Quick Little Project

04-05-2012 10:19 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was spent getting things ready for the site update. Between finishing up the patterns for the new stuff, designing and cutting the new free pattern that I am offering and even drawing up a couple of additional quick designs it kept me pretty busy. I finished the pattern for the calendar topper and that is about ready to go. It came out to be 22 pages long, and includes all 12 months. I left the April and December months for Easter and Christmas respectively, as people can stil...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #660: New Projects Coming Together

04-03-2012 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was one of those days where everything was falling into place. I had a lot of odds and ends to finish up with, but the satisfaction of seeing those project get done was really motivating and it kept me pushing to do more. I love when that happens. I finally got the cheese tray photographed. In speaking with my editor, I also found out that I still had several weeks until it was due to be in New Jersey at the magazine. After running right on deadline since last fall, it was a s...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #654: Two New Projects!

03-28-2012 10:09 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Well, I finally feel like I actually accomplished something! While part of me knows that I work just about every day, sometimes I feel that unless I see something tangible at the end of the day, I didn’t get anything done. It seems like forever since I was able to present a new project, and even though I know it hasn’t been that long, with all the other things that have been going on lately, I feel like I have been slagging lately. Yesterday was a good day. Finally, a day ...

Roy's Mystery Mallet #3: Dressed and Ready for Work

03-12-2012 11:05 PM by pastorglen | 5 comments »

As promised, here’s the final outcome of Roy Underhill’s Mystery Mallet. As you can see, I shaped the handle a little differently than they showed in the magazine. I like the squared-off handle better. I also stained the head one color and then applied several coats of tung oil to the whole thing. Thanks, again, to venues like LJ, Roy Underhill, and the folks over at Popular Woodworking. My woodworking is better because of you all.

Lumber Scores! #3: Log to Lumber - Milling small Ash logs

03-12-2012 12:20 AM by SalvageCraft | 14 comments »

Last year I got a pile of Ash logs from the city when they were taking down beetle infested trees in my neighborhood.I’ve been using bits of it here and there for small projects and barbecues.I’m doing a small table for my lady and have taken photos of my process for milling firewood sized chunks into thin slats for a rustic tabletop. Here be the log:I use the jointer to square two sides. All I need is two flat and square reference surfaces to register against the fence and ta...
